  1. This is a great list of items, there are definitely a whole bunch of products I regret buying over the years of makeup. It’s so sad to see that there are some products on this list that you regret buying cause of a shade match issue! I hate when that happens. Great post Hannah xx

    • Thank you so much, I’m glad you think so! We definitely rack up some products that don’t work over the years and it’s a shame, but at least we learn what kind of things to buy in the future. I know, it’s always shame. Thank you so much xx

  2. I’m totally with you on that Becca palette. I finally bit the bullet and got rid of it recently. I think I knew it was an eyeshadow palette but since 3 of the shades were called the same as the highlighters I figured it would be the same thing. It was a wee bit different in pigmentation though so I only used it for the highlighters a handful of times. I never ever reached for it as an eyeshadow palette and I found it so chunky to store so I just finally said goodbye to it!

    So sad to hear the Naked Heat palette isn’t your thing. I love the shades in that palette! Doesn’t mean I reach for it daily but I do think it’s still a nice asset to my collection.

    • I remember your comment from when I posted it a few weeks back and felt relieved that it wasn’t just me who didn’t like it. It’s definitely a strange one. I’ll probably do the same and get rid of mine soon, like you say it’s too bulky.

      Yeah, it’s not for me at all. I loved it for a while, but the red just are not for me. It’s definitely a lovely addition if you like the reds as it’s perfect for it. xx

  3. This was such an interesting post! If I’m honest I don’t think the Naked palettes are even that great. Sure the colours are pretty but the one I have isn’t even that great pigmentation wise and has a lot of fall out. I definitely think they’re a lot better palettes out there and for a lot cheaper. So crazy how times change! There’s definitely a lot of products I have regretted spending money on haha xx

    • Thank you so much, I’m glad you think so! I know what you mean, I don’t think they’re the best on the market, but I enjoy the original and the second one. If I had to pick just one, I’d pick ColourPop shadows over them for the price they just don’t compare. It’s always a shame when something doesn’t work for you xx

  4. I used to have so many regrets but I’m much better at not just buying things straight away these days and that has helped me to have fewer regrets. I found with Naked Heat that all of the shades blended into one on me! That Becca palette is gorgeous and I nearly bought it so many times but just knew I wouldn’t use it! x

    • Same here, it’s always better when you think it through first and definitely leaves you with less regrets. Ah no way, that’s interesting. It’s not one of their best palettes for sure. It has so many lovely colours, but it’s not practical at all xx

  5. Totally been in the same place as you especially with eyeshadow palettes! I bought my first one in three years the other day but it was only £4.75 from Beauty Bay so I dont feel too bad haha. Now if only I could stop with the lipcstik, blush and bronzer purchases! xx

  6. This was so interesting! I really wanted to try out the Naked Heat palette but I’m glad I didn’t give into the hype as I just know I wouldn’t have got much use out of it. I used to always want to buy things as soon as they came out or if everyone else had it but I’m much better now at taking my time and working out if it’s actually going to be something I use! xx

    • Thank you, I am glad you think so! It’s always a nice feeling when you don’t give into the hype and then realise you wouldn’t have used it anyway. Same here, it’s much better to think it through first xx

  7. Ahh I love my naked heat palette but then again I love reds so that would make sense. I definitely have some products that I regret buying too though (don’t we all)
